For S.

.......lived by the sea.

You are drinking a dead man’s whisky ; i don’t think this is wise.

He gave his life to the river’s cold embrace, pockets weighted down with rocks ; i don’t know why his whisky is in our cupboard.

I know why you are drinking it, and i don’t think it is wise.

Yes, at first it numbs but then your anger rises.

How far ?

What next ?

He took his time before he took his life.

Don’t wait before you decide to start living.

The pain will subside with each sunrise.

Try to avoid her eyes.
